M83's music has always had a visual element.
The swathes of guitars, the flecks of electronics seem to conjure up unique imagery. Returning with new album 'Hurry Up, We're Dreaming' earlier this year, M83 launched a new series of videos to expand upon the themes in their music.
'Wait' is the final instalment of this trilogy. Fleur and Manu once again direct the clip, with the team commenting: "'Wait' is the final episode of the trilogy, the end point of this great visual collaboration that has been ongoing with M83 throughout 2012. We felt it was important to re-connect with a meaningful subject that would have an echo in today's world. The promise of a new cycle, seen through the kid's eyes.”
For his part, Anthony Gonzalez had the following to say: “I love composing music and making music with pictures in my head, it’s really what’s driving me. Cinema is the biggest influence for me - even bigger than music itself, so this album is built as a soundtrack, as an imaginary film. This is what we tried to convey with this trilogy. When I first talked with Fleur and Manu about this video project it was pretty obvious we wanted the same results. I think they were the perfect directors to achieve this…”
